About Post Office Cottage

Post Office Cottage can accommodate two to four guests and is ideal for couples looking for a cosy break away or families and friends wanting to holiday together. It is a delightful stone holiday cottage that is situated in a rural location in the hamlet of Tindale, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in Cumbria. Conveniently located, Tindale Fell is seven miles from the small market town of Brampton and seven miles from Hadrian’s Wall. It is perfect for exploring the northern Pennines and a great place to enjoy country living.

Furnished to a high standard, this charming holiday cottage is ideal for those wanting to escape the pressures of everyday life and enjoy peace and tranquillity. Featuring a cosy comfortable sitting room with wood burning stove; spacious beamed farmhouse kitchen with dining table and additional wood burning stove; and three bedrooms (two of which are en-suite), this is an ideal place for a relaxing break away at any time of the year.

Tindale Fell is a picturesque, undiscovered place where you can enjoy fantastic walks across the fells, directly from the front door, whilst taking in the breathtaking views across the heather and gorse heathland and hills. The location is perfect for exploring north Cumbria, including the picturesque northern Lakes and the coastline of the Solway Firth.

Nearby Brampton is rich in history. Founded in the seventh century as an Anglian settlement, it is well known for its church (St Martin's with the country's most impressive stained glass windows) which was designed by Philip Webb, a Pre-Raphaelite architect. For wildlife (including birdlife) enthusiasts, Geltsdale RSPB reserve is close by and for those happy to travel further afield, Gretna Green on the Scottish borders and the Northumberland National Park are within easy reach.

Other attractions in the local area include:

  • Hadrian's Wall - Birdoswald Roman Fort is the nearest point from the cottage (seven miles) and is in a picturesque setting, with extensive remains of the Roman Fort. The longest remaining continuous stretch of this spectacular World Heritage Site can also be seen and explored here.
  • Settle to Carlisle Railway - Steeped in history, the line runs through remote regions of the Yorkshire Dales and the North Pennines. It is considered to be one of the most scenic railways in England and there is a station at Brampton which connects to Carlisle, should you want to enjoy a spectacular day out on the train!
  • Classic Catherine Cookson Country for those romantics out there!
  • Lanercost Priory (six miles) was founded around 1166 by Henry II and displays a fine example of English architecture. The picturesque and now tranquil setting of Augustinian Lanercost Priory holds a previously troubled history. Sitting close to Hadrian's Wall, it suffered regular attacks during the lengthy Anglo-Scottish wars and on one occasion, by Robert Bruce himself. King Edward I rested here for five months, shortly before his death, on his final campaign.
  • Talkin Tarn (seven miles) has much to offer with its sixty five acre lake, set amongst one hundred and twenty acres of woodland and farmland. The tarn is a perfect place for enjoying outdoor activities or a quiet stroll through the mature woodlands. Here you can windsurf, fish, sail, canoe or hire a wooden rowing boat.
  • Stephenson Rocket last days Tindale - This early locomotive was the most advanced steam engine of its time which worked the line between Brampton Junction and Halton Lea Gate between 1836 and 1840. The line ran past the end of the terrace of cottages but was closed in 1953. The old trackbed is now the footpath to Hallbank gate.
